One of my favourite Austen novels. Emma is surely not the most likeable protagonist, but oh so authentic: a spoilt rich girl who thinks she knows better than everyone. Her arrogance and naïveté is so funny to read about; and as always, the other characters are hilarious as well. It might be a bit hard to get into Austen‘s writing — especially the long descriptions of every day life and the long dialogues — but it‘s worth it!

Buechersuechtling I wanted to try to read this one but bailed on it quite fast. I was so annoyed by Emma, you can‘t imagine. 🙄 But if I find it as audiobook I might give it another try. 1mo
LaLecture @Buechersuechtling Understandable 😄. She really is freaking annoying. I find it hilarious, but I absolutely get why it might make others bail on the book 😅. 1mo

It‘s loosely based on, more like a modern retelling, but I‘m counting it as my #favoritebooktomovieadaptation!

#mbcreadathon #mbcfrogsread12 My favorite book I‘ve read this year was “Emma” by Jane Austen, But I think the book thief is gonna take first place when I‘m through reading it.

Book #53: Coming into Emma with a fairly large preconceived notion about the Austen/Bronte books of the time, I was pleasantly surprised and this book was actually better than I was expecting. Once I got passed Austen's round-about way of speaking the book rather intrigued me. The story is about a female in her early twenties among the upper class social...

Killing time before going to my knitting group. I‘m just waiting for a moment in this book where Emma just stands up and tells Mrs. Elton. “SHUT 👏 THE 👏 FUCK 👏 UP👏.” In 1816 terms, of course. #janeausten #tea

#30junebooks E

This was a tough one. Although e is the most used letter, not very many of my books have a title word that starts with E. It was Emma, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, & Ken Follett‘s World Without End & The Pillars of the Earth.

"Never mind, Harriet, I shall not be a poor old maid; and it is poverty only which makes celibacy contemptible to a generous public! A single woman, with a very narrow income, must be a ridiculous, disagreeable old maid! -- the proper sport of boys and girls -- but a single woman, of good fortune, is always respectable, and may be as sensible and pleasant as any body else.”

Emma‘s snobbery is both horrifying and amusing.

“Her daughter enjoyed a most uncommon degree of popularity for a woman neither young, handsome, rich, nor married. Miss Bates stood in the very worst predicament in the world for having much of the public favour; and she had no intellectual superiority to make atonement to herself, or frighten those who might hate her into outward respect.” Miss Bates is everybody‘s favorite #spinster #quotsyjune19 @TK-421

This exclusive audiobook is amazing; no contrived voices by one narrator because actors play the parts. Includes music and sound effects. The writing is, of course, well done. But let me say: this is not my genre. Facts in the story irritate me to no end—is it really true that women of a certain class at a certain time in history had nothing better to do than worry about romantic pairings? 🤔 Women: get a life! My apologies to Austen fans. 😶

Merethebookgal I‘m actually re-reading this via a different version of this audiobook right now! It‘s definitely not my favorite Austen, but it‘s fun! I do appreciate the satirical nature of Austen for writing over-the-top characters, but I‘m not quite halfway through with 9.5 more hours to go and I can‘t for the life of me remember what else could possibly happen to take up so much time 😅 8mo
Texreader @Merethebookgal The Audible version must be annotated because it‘s only 8 hours 20 minutes. I really couldn‘t have handled much more. 8mo
Merethebookgal @Texreader Yeah, this unabridged version is 17 hours 😳😑 8mo
Texreader @Merethebookgal So I didn‘t know mine was abridged, so I realize now that I have a limited view of the book: surely there is more going on than matchmaking! 8mo

I had bailed shortly into this when I first got it, but started it again today. Not my genre and Emma the main character is driving me nuts! But the audio quality is top notch: look at the talent of the “cast.” I liked the movie Pride and Prejudice, so I‘m sticking this one out come what may. Perhaps I‘ll be surprised.
